Every time I visit a city, I happen to find a distinction between it and Hong Kong. So when I and my wife paid a visit to Taipei recently, I made a personal vow to follow what I did with my observations in Seoul and Tokyo.

He was young, good looking, and photogenic. He swept to power against heavy odds on the back of a heart-warming, hopey-changey message, completing a rags-to-riches journey that might have come straight out of a blockbuster movie.

Bring Out Your Dead - UBS Quantifies Costs Of Euro Break Up, Warns Of Collapse Of Banking System And Civil War
Tyler Durden Zero Hedge 09/07/2011
Hong Kong is an economic paradox with few peers.It's routinely ranked the world's best place to do business by the Heritage Foundation and The Wall Street Journal, which publish the annual Index of Economic Freedom.
